I hope all of you had a wonderful holiday! Ours was amazing. Every year I say, "This was the best Christmas!" and each year it keeps getting better. I made several gifts this year, 2 blankets, some ornaments, and this set of cards for my Mother-in-Law. I used some of my new Hero Arts stamps. Aren't they beautiful? These cards aren't my usual style, but I wanted to make something that my MIL would like. These were also super simple to make. I used the large background stamp, and black heat embossed the whole thing on patterned paper. It really added great texture and dimension. I then stamped the sentiment, hole punched it, and strung through some embroidery floss. There were 4 cards total (2 birthday, 2 thank you). I think she liked them! Did you make any gifts this year?
**Note that the large background stamp image at stores online is wrong - it is actually the reverse of what is shown. I learned the hard way after I had already bought it. You can see the correct image on the Hero Arts website when you browse the digital catalog**
